Alternative Approaches to Implementing Change

Is change always good? We are constantly trying to change our organizations and ourselves in order to optimize productivity and goal completion– but a new article advocates for an alternative approach.

Actually, the concept of change management may increase your degree of fear, resistance and even failure to reach outcomes. It may lead you and your fellow team members to experience loss of control and even a sense of helplessness.

So what to do? New approaches advocate involving employees in solving business problems. Problem solving can motivate change through autonomy and skill development. I often advise leaders to ask employees to link solutions to their complaints. This practice fosters and optimizes morale because it encourages taking responsibility for creating your desired work environment.

By involving team members in implementing solutions, your organization as a whole can see increased benefits, results, and synergy.
